Emergency crews arrive near the finish of the Boston Marathon after two explosions.


Two of the four Roseville residents who ran in the Boston Marathon Monday confirmed they were safe and not harmed by the deadly explosions near the finish line of the race.

Bill Clements said by email that he was on his way back to his hotel when the explosions went off.

“Prior to the explosions the race was going great,” Clements wrote. “It’s just hard to believe that I had just crossed the finish area where this tragedy occurred only an hour before.”
